Step By Step Directions: Sweet Potato Apple Salad
1 In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the sweet potatoes. Cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Cover the pan and cook for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are fork-tender. Remove the pan from the heat and drain all the water from the potatoes. Cool the potatoes for 15 minutes.
2 In a glass jar with a lid, add the olive oil, orange juice, granulated sugar, white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, onion, poppy seeds, orange zest, and lemon zest. Place the lid on the jar and shake until well combined.
3 Peel the potatoes and cut them in half lengthwise. Cut the halves into 1/4″ thick slices. Place about 1/4 of the potatoes in a serving bowl. Place 1/4 of the apples over the sweet potatoes. Sprinkle 1/4 of the green onions over the sweet potatoes. Drizzle 1/4 of the dressing over the top. Repeat the layering process 3 more times. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 2 hours. Toss the salad before serving.
